Unfortunately the final member of the squad, Tom McEwan, will not be riding after his horse Diesel was eliminated at the first trot-up.

Competition gets underway on Thursday with the first of two days of dressage, followed by cross-country on Saturday and the final nail-biting showjumping rounds on Sunday.
